Under Dr. Herron's leadership, WJCC Schools has developed an ambitious but achievable strategic plan. We need to communicate and build consensus with parents and the community to make these plans a reality.
Teachers can manage and connect with students more easily in smaller classes. Fewer students means more learning.
Testing should be done by volunteers, outside the classroom, allowing teachers more time to teach and children more time to learn.
Career and technical education programs give middle- and high-school students a chance to explore all kinds of careers and post-high-school education.
Paying teachers more helps retain good teachers -- and encourages our graduates to consider teaching as their career.
Children learn better -- and raise their ambitions -- when some of their teachers look like them.

Helping others get comfortable with uncomfortable conversations is the first step to the community conversations we need to have in order to make sure all our children are getting the education they need and deserve.
